What inspires me?
For me it is not a question of what, but rather of how.
The below is what gives me inspiration. But after some time of study I realised that I already had plenty of inspiration. The problem however was that the already acquired inspiration didn't got to me when I needed it. I had to find out what was blocking it and recreate the inspirational moment.
This is what gives me inspiration
This is how I recreate the inspirational moment
I found that the creative moment is always present, but, is being blocked by distractions, activities, habits and routines.
These are the techniques that I found most effective to recreate the inspirational moment:
No phone, no TV, no laptop, nothing. Just pen, paper and my surroundings.
Brainwave entrainment (BWE) with isochronic tones for altering your creative brainwaves.
Pretending I'm at home
I have a lot more inspiration while I'm working at home.
Generate ideas after the deadline
I believe that I am better at generating creative ideas after the deadline of a project.
Keeping a private sketchbook with ugly sketches
My work is a lot better without the pressure and judgement of others.
By managing time I am more at ease and it increases my inspiration.
I believe that disconnecting yourself will be beneficial for many people trying to recreate the inspirational moment.
